past 20 states in job creation and turned a deficit into a rainy day fund. whether in public office or private business, i did not ask people what party they belong to. i asked them what ideas they brought to the table. as the governor, i met with leaders of both parties to find common ground. that is what i will do as president, and i will start on day one. on my first day of office, i will send five bills to office and signed five executive orders. everyone of them will help us create jobs. that is just the start of my plan to create 12 million jobs in my first term alone. every piece of legislation and every executive order will help us achieve five important goals. first, to achieve north american energy independence by 2020. second, to make sure students and workers have the skills they need to succeed. third, we will promote trade that works for america and cut down on countries like china when they cheat. fourth, we will cut the deficit from day one and balance our budget within 10 years. finally, we will champion our small businesses, of the engine of job creation in this co
spending cuts and we need to be talking about increasing revenues. it takes both to close the deficit. we both submitted our economic proposals to the boston globe. they were sent out four independent economic analysis. what the independent economists found is that i was 67% more effective at cutting the deficit then senator brown. why? because i am willing to make cuts. i am willing to make substantial cuts. i support substantial cuts. i also believe we have to raise revenues. that is what it will take to get serious about our deficit. i truly believe on this one, this is about our children and grandchildren. we cannot leave it to our grandchildren to pay off our debts. >> great question. we are in the $16 trillion national debt. we are in another trillion dollar deficit. you cannot keep borrowing to pay our bills. when we are talking about cutting military spending, we have party cut in half a trillion dollars. that affects many people in this room and people watching. i have been battling as a member of the arms services committee to try to find the resources to protect our men and wom
to get a broader deficit in place combining the tax cuts, extending the bush era tax cuts? umax. buerkle: the house voted with bipartisan support. we don't know what the regulation is going to be coming down type. it will disparately affect the middle class or it will affect all americans in an economy that is so fragile. it will be a mistake to raise taxes. the last congress in 2010 knew that. we don't raise taxes when the economy is fragile. it will impact businesses and job creation and what we want to do is encourage them and help them grow so they can hire and get our economy back on track. >> moderator: sea would get us back on track for now and beyond? buerkle: public. rozum: i would support progressives marginal tax rates on the top 10%. those that have done well in our economy in the past 40 years. i support the eisenhower rates. with the eisenhower rates we could raise $1.2 trillion people need to be put back to work with money in their pockets. i also support cutting the military budget by 50%. we can protect small businesses and farms by not raising taxes. when we get over a
from deficits to surplus, from job losses to job gains. and let's think about his pure leadership capability in those olympics. he didn't lead with a title and he didn't lead with anything other than the ability of a human being to raise the bar of everybody else. you know what, my kids are 12 years old. i want an america that will give the next generation more than the last generation gave to us. that's the greatest american tradition that we celebrate across our great country. i know he's going to deliver that. i'm not for mitt romney just because he happens to be a republican. i'm for mitt romney because he will lead to a brighter and stronger america and a brighter and stronger ohio. we need the wind at our back, not in our face. there are a lot of polls out there talking about what the going to happen. i've thought about it long and hard and i don't spin a lot. i do it straight from the shoulder. look around. look at this crowd. look at this enthusiasm and not just here. not just here but all across this state of ohio. yes the world is watching us. the world is watching ohio
in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it comes down the pipe -- [inaudible] right now we have a situation where the pentagon is saying that we don't need as much money as mitt romney is proposing. that it's not necessary, number one. they are not lugging the restraint, but there is a general attitude that we have to do more with less, let's put our heads together and figure out how to do that. a great panic that this is going to make us a third-rate military. so right now it seems like there is room to cut where you can. they have a stake in the matter to te
. at the same time, he is enormously concerned about the deficit, about government spending, and about debt. he told me if i ran my business the way the government runs its house, i'd be out of business, and that is what we hear across iowa, city to city, whether they lean right or left, they hate the debt here, and i spoke to this one guy in des moines, bob bradshaw. i think he sums it up pretty well. listen. is it the jobs or is it the deficit? >> both. you know, if we're not bringing it in, we shouldn't spend it. and if it's, you know, tough on us to make it better for our kids, i'm willing to sacrifice now to make it better for our kids. >> so interesting. and also people talk about the quality of the jobs, too, right? so even though the unemployment rate is 5.2%, they're worried about how much debt we have, the deficit. they're also worried that the quality of the jobs that are available aren't maybe what they used to be. >> they are. and they said, look, poppy, it's not just about that 5.2%, it's about the jobs that we're getting that are being created. they're lower paying jobs, the hour
of momentum in florida, thank you very much, steve. >> he said he would cut the deficit in half, instead, it's double what it was. he said he'd get unemployment by now down to 5.2%, and we learned today, it ticked up to 7.9%, that's 9 million jobs short. >> that was governor mitt romney calling out president obama for falling-- 9 million jobs soar has promised. and the bureau of labor and statistics, adding 171,000 jobs, now are the new numbers going to affect the way the candidates talk about the economy in these final days before the election in joining us now with perspective, a mitt romney supporter who deals firsthand with unemployment issues, governor jan brewer of arizona. >> good morning. >> let's talk for a moment about the jobs numbers that came out yesterday, and the president is saying that the fact that 171,000 jobs have been added shows that his policies are working and taking a little longer than he had he' hoped, but that the country is moving in the right direction. and what's your response to that? >> well, you know, we're all grateful as things are, are turning around a li
for the deficit. we will look at some of the numbers, all of that on the other side of the debate. please stay with us. welcome back to the continuation of our debate. with us today, congressman allen west and patrick murphy. we will continue our discussion with george bennett. >> we left hanging on the deficit. you are opposed to raising taxes. the deficit this past year was $1.1 trillion. if you are not going to raise taxes, what are the things you can cut to get close to erasing a $1.1 trillion deficit? >> we should be about $230 billion, but we have to look at agencies that were created that are not meeting up to their mission. you look at the department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at th
with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they want to implement are so great why didn't they work in the last 10 years? we have a lot more information in our society today. that was not that long ago when we experienced almost a complete economic collapse. the president has been able to help dig us out of the whole and get us moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it said we ill create over a million new jobs. get some money into the road and bridge projects that we need done in this country. make sure local governments are not laying off police, fire, and teachers. let's move the economy forward and create jobs. make investments into the new energy sector, research and development so we can create the jobs of the future. so places like ohio can keep going with what it is that we have been doing and build on the auto industry and build on the steel industry and get into the new economies. we are hitting a roa
deficit, invest in the skills of our people, invest in the ideas that we need to succeed in a new economy. and, at the time, back in the '90s, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's program would hurt the economy and kill jobs. sound familiar? turns out, his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because, by the end of president clinton's second term, we created 23 million new jobs, incomes were up, deficits were down. so, iowa, we know our ideas work. we've put them to the test. we also know that their ideas don't work. because they have been tested, also. in the eight years before i came into office, we've tried what they're selling. we've tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest of americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free license to do what they please. here's what we got. fallen incomes, record deficits, and an economic crisis we're still cleaning up after. so we know what works. we know what doesn't. now, governor romney, he's a very talented salesman. and, in this campaign, he's been working

taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of them will get the 12 million jobs in four years that they're promising? >> it would be a very good outcome. i think it's a long shot, frankly. >> your answer is smarter than mine. i said i'd wear a dress for a week if it happened. you're in less danger. thanks very much for being with us. >>> let's get back to ohio. let's get back to the auto bailout. president obama bailed out the auto industry. mitt romney says the bailed out auto companies are using that money to ship jobs to china. we'll get to the bottom of w
cuts. but the deficit situation has now grown so bad that there's just no appetite for further borrowing at this time. >> maya macguineas runs the committee for a responsible federal budget, a bipartisan group that lobbies congress. she says uncertainty about how the government will deal with the deficit and the huge national debt is inhibiting employers from hiring. >> in the business world, there's over $2 trillion of cash sitting on the sidelines that could be used to grow the economy, make investments and create jobs. but it's not going to be invested until people know what to expect going forward in the economy. and that's why you need some kind of stability that would come from a big debt deal to help bring that about. >> in fact, unless there is a grand bargain on taxes and government spending by the end of the year, by some estimates, another 2 million people could lose their jobs beginning early next year. that's when the nation would drive off the so-called fiscal cliff. if that were to happen tax rates would go up for nearly every single income group. taxes on invest
, restoring uni, uni has had a structural budget deficit. we need supervisors who are going to have the political will to find the resources to fully fund our mta system. i am looking at a number of options from congestion pricing to a downtown transit tax assessment district to even a local gas tax or a local vehicle license fee so that we can fully fund our uni system and stop fixing the buses with duct tape and have a first-class transit system in san francisco. another way that we can be a leader is to encourage people to get out of the cars and on to bike by developing a 100 percent renewable infrastructure and making green building and agriculture the norm in san francisco. i have been endorsed by the san francisco bay garden and the tenant's union and the lgbt, club and the action for children and many, many more. these organizations know that san francisco needs leaders that can face our issues honestly, without deference to big money. my name is julian, davis and i am running for supervisor in district five and i would be pleased to have your vote this november. >> hello,
recession in comparison to the rest of the economy. the huge issue is not the deficit number itself. it's the ratio of the debt to the economy over all. if the economy is growing because government is the spender of last resort and encouraging investment, education, job training, infrastructure, that growth actually enables the debt to shrink as proportion of the economy over all. europe and particularly spain and britain are the worst examples. they embarked on austerity economics, what happens? they actually shrink their economy. they go into recession, and their debt or deficit becomes a bigger problem as as the overall economy. >> eliot: i want to take snippets of this conversation and send it to every voter, and that would be a guarantee that there would an second term for president obama. previews of uc berkeley goldman school of public policy. as always, thank you. >> thanks. >> eliot: dennis kelleher president and ceo of better markets, nonpartisan organization promoting public interestage financial reform. den, you heard robert reich who has not gotten enough attention that is
enough, when you take into fact we spent $4.5 trillion in deficit recovery,. >> and an improvement ratio? >> not improving. >> not on that path. >> it's not on that path. >> is it an aberration? >> bureau of labor stats on this. have you requested them? >> yes, they don't tell you a lot of things. like the labor force participation rate. which has dropped toyorelatively low numbers, which makes the unemployment numbers lo better. >> in hindsight, when he critizes the last month's report. >> last month in crthe last month's report, the only reason that number got better was 582 people thousand left e the calculation, and went to work on a part-time basis, so the part-time jobs got better, bu we did not, they took these people out of ofthe denominator. >> those numbers are not that -- >> nay says finish? >> we're being accurate. >> i would say that's the nay-ers. if you look at the economy, nayu could see consumer confidence s the highest it's been. we've had steady, but nfslow growth. independent economists say we're on track to create 12 million jobs in the next four years, thwhoever is
massive budget deficits. in fact, my first couple years we had half billion dollar budget deficits we were trying to eliminate from our budget. the thought of not only bringing back 30 million that we lost a couple years ago, it's only a small amount compared to what we have had to cut the last couple years and i think everyone has seen the impact of not having enough money for muni, having to close down services vital to our city, not having money to build affordable housing for our police officers, our fire fighters, our nurses, our public health system, i think we all see the benefit of that. >> starchild, you made a comment earlier that you agreed with the supervisor with the exception of the registration fee for all the businesses. is that the only issue that you disagree with or are there other issues that you disagree with? >> that's the only issue. the issue is that we shouldn't be transferring more money from the people of san francisco to the government of san francisco. government has grown so much in recent years and now we're in the middle of an economic downturn when
, asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more. so we could reduce our deficit and invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know, at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an ec
-partisan president but he's been the most partisan, dividing and demonizing. he said he would cut the deficit in half. he's doubled it. he said he would focus on jobs, instead he focused on obama care that kills job and said he'd bring health insurance down $2,500 a year, the cost of it for an average family. anybody here have their insurance go down 2,500? >> no. >> as a matter of fact, the average is up $3,000 per family. look, the president said that he would work across the aisle, he would meet regularly with leaders in the republican party. do you know how long it's been since he's met with the republican leader of the house or the senate on jobs or the economy or the deficit, since july he hasn't met with him. look, he just has not been able to deliver on the promises he's made. talk is cheap. a record is real and takes hard work, and he has not been able to accomplish it, and i actually have a record of accomplishment and that's why i'm running. as you know, i started a business. i actually helped turn around another business and helped turn around the olympics and you may have heard i was gov

. what he is doing on day one is adding to the deficit. >> could be but let's go back to 1980 and ronald reagan. changed tax policy, a similar situation to now. i don't know many people who trust washington to have any more money to spend. >> i think reagan is a great example. he did cut taxes and we had exploiting deficits in 1980s. >> then he raised them. >> then he raised them. we do also have another example from the 1990s, which is president clinton, who had a balanced budget. he asked the wealthy to pay more. the rates went up to 39.6. we had eight years of very strong growth. >> including surplus. >> i'm not saying the taxes cause that but we know that having higher taxes on wealthy americans didn't lead to a recession as republicans have argued. that's what's really daunting about the whole discussion about taxes. the fact that we have no real idea what mitt romney will do on taxes as president other than if we take him at his word, it does mean that middle class americans will pay more in taxes. either he is not being honest with us or middle class americans will see a tax incre
the hurricane and who took a $300 million surplus and left us with a $1 billion deficit, or you can choose me. i would like to go to washington to lead the fight to reduce spending and regulations and do things to grow this economy. i would appreciate your vote. >> i am not a politician. this is a little bit uncomfortable. i am a businessman and chairman of my local council. the negativity that has consumed this campaign bothers me. cynthia, i am tired of your criticism of old, wealthy white man. he went beyond the pale when you accuse angus king of the allied air. charlie, i am tired of your commercials ruining all of my favorite shows on abc. you do not think angus is responsible for a lot of terrible things. as an voter and citizen of maine, i will ask you to stop your attacks for the next hour. if you do not do any attacks for the next hour, i pledge to give two checks for $5,000 a piece to the charity of your choice. this will prove that you will put maine first. >> now that you know a little bit about each of our candidates tonight, we will move right to our questions. there are a lot of i
